ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD WEDDING FAVORS:

Hello there! I wanted to share these sweet little favors I made for an upcoming wedding. I want to thank Marcia~aka Heartsmiles for doing all the work and figuring out the dimensions for these. You can see her samples here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/attachments/demo-business-talk-f27/294676d1401396616-dscf5362.jpg. The wedding colors are black & white, so the Back To Black DSP worked perfect!

After I cut, punched and assembled them, I put a Hershey's Kiss & a Hug in each one. You could probably fit 2 of each inside if you're wanting to give a little extra love:) I then tied up each end using Basic Black Baker's Twine.

I decorated the little bonbons with 1" circles in Basic Black & Whisper White Cardstock and added a banner on top made with the Bitty Banner Framelits and Big Shot. I stamped the sentiment from a retired set~I didn't have a current set that tiny. I then punched the heart out of Pink Pirouette Cardstock using the retired small heart punch, but you could easily substitute the current heart in the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I finished them off with a Basic Rhinestone Jewel.

I got quite the upper body work-out making these, and was sore for several days afterwards. Each favor requires about a dozen punches and I made over 100 of them! Here's where the original ideas came from: http://patternedpapercrafts.blogspot.ca/2014/05/hersheys-gift.html and here:
